    under construction - target parking lot! 1415 Main Street, Watsonville, ca 95076 - near the el pollo loco - at least 10 urban charger stalls - construction crew wouldn’t let me get that close - i’d say 80% done pretty far along - pics when i get home!

    apologies for pics - crew was really grumpy i was there taking pics - only able to get back side of stalls - they look like urban SC’s to me - but i physically counted 10 - but there is room for at least 14 total - a few stalls are hidden behind the brown equipment walls!

    good amenities

    el pollo loco, mcdonald’s, satrbucks, target, grocery store, panda express (bit of a hike), sushi, yogurt land, staples, papa murphy’s, taqueria, 7-11, and some mom/pop shops, not sure about restrooms off hours, cell cover is adequate but not great (1-2 bar LTE according to car), not really close to freeway, but not horrible from hwy 1

    this will be a great location to help fill out hwy 1 routes- easy easy run now from big sir all the way to daly city for hwy 1 north to south!

    seems close to construction finished - no idea when it will be powered!

    Yeah - they're still under strict NDA's. Avoid pics of the workers.

    Went to check out this local-to-me location last night. As posted earlier 14 Superchargers, and 2 others. They’re in the Target parking lot. Coffee, take-out,restaurants and bathrooms in the same lot.

    Looks like they’re all done, but still cordoned off. 1BED0BA3-1769-4E58-896F-FB70E47A827D.jpeg 5DF4C50B-E2BF-4ADE-9770-DEF3CF5B5A7C.jpeg 6A14B9E0-DFDE-47AF-9CCC-FEA3A0D0279D.jpeg 1BED0BA3-1769-4E58-896F-FB70E47A827D.jpeg 5DF4C50B-E2BF-4ADE-9770-DEF3CF5B5A7C.jpeg 6A14B9E0-DFDE-47AF-9CCC-FEA3A0D0279D.jpeg

    Based on the photos, it looks like the chargepoints have two cables each. So that would be 4 of the J1772 chargers. I like that they're combining Superchargers and slow chargers in the same location. This is very close to where I work, so it could be very convenient for me if there's a long power outage at home, etc. I can try to scope out exactly when it opens.

    Any sign of a transformer (good) or empty transformer pad (bad)? It's not done until the PG&E transformer is there (and that's one of the last steps), because without it there ain't gonna be no juice.
